Thank you to Mark Norris and Newquay Zoo who kindly donated a wonderful collection of original WW2 newspaper clippings and cookery pamphlets and books.
Quote: “The World War Zoo Gardens research project, schools workshops and allotment at Newquay Zoo ran from 2009 to 2019 (from the 70th to the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of WW2).”
I’m thrilled to have received this collection and am looking forward to photographing, scanning and sharing the complete collection digitally for all.
PS: Check out Marks “Wartime Diaries” research. This is an AMAZING slice of social history!
